A trio of new, high-demand, high-quality degrees have been developed in collaboration between visionary faculty and regional manufacturing leaders. The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology degrees are putting the Northeast Wisconsin Educational Resource Alliance (NEW ERA) colleges and institutions on the map. They fulfill an industry need for engineering technologists, while providing students a convenient, high-impact, rigorous program and path to life-long success.
How It Works
Students pursuing any of the three degrees begin their academic studies at any one of 12 NEW ERA institutions and colleges – four technical colleges, five UW Colleges, the tribal college, UW-Green Bay and UW-Oshkosh. Students finish the program and earn degrees at either UW-Green Bay or UW-Oshkosh. The result: Well-prepared graduates with knowledge and skill regional manufacturers say they are ready to put to work.
Bachelor of Science – Electrical Engineering Technology
- Prepares students for a career as an electrical engineering technologist with the technical and managerial skills necessary to enter careers in the design, application, installation, manufacturing, operation and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems.
- Students specialize in product improvement, manufacturing, construction and operational engineering functions.
Bachelor of Science – Environmental Engineering Technology
- Responds to northeastern Wisconsin manufacturers’ and municipalities’ workforce needs as well as addresses 2010-2020 Bureau of Labor Statistics projections estimating a 14 percent increase in environmental engineering technology positions.
- Graduates are prepared to work in a number of industries outside of manufacturing, such as in water and wastewater management, agribusiness and biotechnology sectors.
Bachelor of Science – Mechanical Engineering Technology
- Provides students with instruction and hands-on experience to develop competencies in applied mechanical engineering and analytical and critical problem-solving skills.
- Graduates and industry benefit through a more knowledgeable and flexible workforce that will fill positions in regional industries, manufacturing and engineering service firms.
